on the way to the 'Demon Dance' Launch
We had a few drinks with friends and thus ended a terrific first evening.
Saturday 18th September.
Opened in the dealers' room where David and I set up to sell some Telos Publishing stock. Here I met up with my publisher Terry Martin from The House of Murky Depths and his wife Liz. Already copies of Killing Kiss, Futile Flame and Demon Dance had been sold. The dealers' room had a real vibe this year, with excellent footfall and more readers buying than I've seen in previous years at this event.
